— G. K. Chesterton

God grant me the courage not to give up what I think is right even though I think it is hopeless.

— Walter F. Mondale

No evil dooms us hopelessly except the evil we love, and desire to continue in, and make no effort to escape from.
— George Eliot

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
— hopeless quotation by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
